This long, large sticker says “UNPRESIDENTED.” Its meaning is a two-fold play on the world unprecedented. On the morning of December 17, 2017, U.S. President Donald J. Trump took to Twitter to call China’s seizure of an American drone an “unpresidented” act, when in fact he or someone on his behalf should have used the word “unprecedented.” I also feel that Trump isn’t my president, and I want him to be unpresidented, or impeached. The sticker was handed to me at the Boston Public Library during a Writers Resist event that encouraged writers to protect democracy with their words to “bypass empty political discourse and focus public attention on the ideals of a free, just, and compassionate society.”
